Electric motor maker Remy International, Inc. (OTC-PINK: RMYI) announced Tuesday that it has agreed to supply its HVH250 motors to Quantum Fuel Systems, which will use them in its Ford F-150 PHEV conversions.
Quantum recently announced plans to upgrade Ford’s popular pickup to a parallel hybrid system with an electric range of 35 miles and a total range of 400 miles. The F-150 PHEV will come standard with 4WD, and a payload of up to 900 lbs. and a towing capacity of 5,800 lbs.
Remy VP Kevin Quinn said, “Quantum is a very innovative company, and the Ford F-150 PHEV program is just another great example of their capabilities and drive to move technology forward. Remy is extremely pleased to be part of their success.”
David M. Mazaika, Quantum’s COO, said, “Quantum’s Ford F150 PHEV program had some very stringent requirements for the electric motors and generators. Remy’s HVH250 really delivers on all fronts, performance, reliability, value and efficiency. This is exactly the type of key partner we need to make this program a success.”
